Summer Programmes for 13 - 24 year olds

Summerversity is a week long programme for 13-16 year olds and is a fun way to learn all the aspects of working at an urban farm. The City Farm Apprentice is a two week, more intensive, course for 16-24 years with more of a focus on career paths and future opportunities. See below for more information.
